“Up top, Colonel Whisker Biscuits! Down low, Mooky the Ghost!”
Some of us had invisible friends growing up, and it just so happened that Wesley Iwundu brought a few of his to the game Tuesday night.
The Kansas State freshman went in for some invisible daps after a made free throw against Texas Tech Tuesday night. Officials had cleared the floor for a technical foul shot, and Iwundu ended up high-fiving the rest of his unseen childhood friends after draining his first shot.
Not since Andrew Bogut did the invisible high-five shimmy as a Milwaukee Buck has someone so casually drawn congratulations from the air.
I like to think this was a deliberately preplanned event by Iwundu. Technical free throws, by their very nature, are against everything natural and good in this world. No one feels comfortable shooting free throws on 5,000 acres of glowing, empty hardwood as a sea of humanity watches.
To combat this pressure, you stick to your plan. Iwundu wanted his high-fives and got them. Sure, they came from Dr. Hieronymus Poopkins and the invisible specter of Master Splinter, but the point is a transaction took place...kind of.
